Royal Enfield: 100 miles per gallon

Tucson resident Geoffrey Baker describes what happened when he first rode his Royal Enfield Bullet Military around town. Everyone who has done this will recognize the phenomenon he observed:

"The most surprising--and satisfying--part of driving was the reaction. Most people were convinced it was an antique. Once, a man came running out of a house, waving me down. He had recognized the Royal Enfield from the sound alone, the big thump of the single-cylinder engine. "

Geoffrey goes on to describe how he converted his Bullet into a bio-diesel powered motorcycle in Tucson Weekly. He claims more than 100 miles per gallon.
